About Me

Jr photoHi,

My name is Jason Romain, I have over 20 years experience in B2B conference marketing.

I’m also a happily married father of two great kids.

I currently live in Singapore, but I have also lived in Dubai, Darwin, Sydney, London, Santiago (Chile) and New York.  I have travelled extensively, mainly for business, including marketing B2B conferences in Australia, Sweden,  Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong,  Brazil, New Zealand, Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, Papua New Guinea and numerous other places.

I’m currently Chief Marketing Officer for IQPC (www.iqpc.com), a global organisation that specialises in conferences and online communities (such as www.idga.org, www.ssonetwork.com, www.defenceiq.com, www.sixsigmaiq.com, www.humanresourcesiq.comwww.pexnetwork.com and others).  Although I am currently based in the IQPC office in Singapore, I travel about 6 months of the year, including regular trips to our offices in New York, London, Sydney, Dubai, Bangalore, and Berlin. IQPC is full of talented and energetic people with whom I enjoy working with tremendously, as Warren Buffett once said “I tap dance to work every day!”.

My wife also runs her own Swimming School in Singapore called Swish Swimming at Dempsey Hill in the center of Singapore, if you have any kids who need lessons I highly recommend her! (she’s my wife after all!)

I love your blog! In my free time, I’ve started my own blog about marketing….because I’m a bit of a nerd. I love writing and I love marketing, so I thought I’d combine the two….

I thought I’d pass it along in hopes that you’ll take a moment to check it out.


Thanks Jason!

I love your blog! The videos are so funny. I love the writes ups on marketing too. I came across your blog because I was vetting out your company. I am trying to get into conference producing. Please take a look at my business and technology blog. I recently did a interview with the co founder of Last Minute.com that will be up soon. I look forward to reading more posts and you have given a real creative representation of your company!

Hi Jason,

I would like to request your guidance regarding my career.

I am a mass media graduate from Mumbai, but have been working in sales since finishing college. I did take a break from sales and tried marketing (mostly B2C) for almost 3 years and came back to sales, due to lack of opportunity. i feel because of many years of sales experience interviewers felt that I could do better in sales as I did in the past.

Currently I am back in sales and feel incomplete in the role- not as excited as before. I was more satisfied and happy with a more strategic role than the current tactical sales role.

Can you please suggest the best possible way to make this lateral move to marketing and a way to convince the management that I enjoy marketing and will be more productive. I am also ready to start as an executive and move up.

I would really appreciate if you could guide me in my quest.

Thanks and regards,
Sponsorship Sales Person
